NINETEEN HUNDRED AND TWENTT-ONE 



Massachusetts Horticultural Society 
1920. 



Beginning with the year 1920 a change is made in the publica- 
tions of the Society. Since 1874 the "Transactions" have been 
issued in two parts every year, with the exception of the years 1895, 
1896, and 1897, when a third part was added containing a list of 
accessions to the library. Part 1 contained reports of lectures 
delivered before the Society and Part 2, the annual reports of the 
various officers and committees. 

The necessity of a more prompt issue of the horticultural papers 
is recognized and the publication of the "Bulletin" renders it 
unnecessary to continue the former methods. It is now proposed 
to use the "Bulletin" for the horticultural papers and to publish 
an annual report containing the reports of officers and committees.

ANNUAL REPORT FOR THE YEAR 1920. 



INAUGURAL MEETING. 



The Inaugural Meeting of the Massachusetts Horticultural 
Society for the year 1920 was held at Horticultural Hall, Boston, 
on Saturday, January 10, at twelve o'clock, with President Endicott 
in the Chair. 

The following Inaugural Address was delivered by the President: 

INAUGURAL ADDRESS OF PRESIDENT EXDICOTT. 

During the year the work of the Society has progressed along 
its usual lines. The coining year will, I trust, enable the Society 
to do work which will be of lasting value by giving ten exhibitions 
in which money prizes are offered; by distributing silver and bronze 
medals to children throughout the Commonwealth; by publishing 
Part II of the Catalogue; and by issuing Bulletins from time to 
time. 

Our Trustees voted to hold, during the year 1920, only >i\ 
exhibitions. For the great Orchid Show, to be held in March, 
prizes amounting to $5000 have been offered, and an additional sum 
of $2500 has been appropriated for the other five exhibitions. 
Through the generosity of a member of the Society, $1000 has been 
offered for four exhibitions, which will be held during the summer 
months, making in all ten exhibitions. Among young people, 
interest in gardening has shown a tremendous increase, particularly 
since the war. In order that Buch interest may receive further 
encouragement, the Trustee-, recognizing the importance of this 
work, have voted to distribute fifty silver and fifty bronze medals 
for the best gardens cultivated by children under eighteen years of

age, in various parts of the State. This plan appears to be an 
excellent one, as it is in the line of extending our influence. 

The Library contains one of the largest and best collections of 
books in the world relating to horticulture and kindred subjects. 
These books are frequently consulted by students and specialists 
in the preparation of horticultural and agricultural publications. 
Members are free to withdraw books for home use. Upon request 
to the Librarian, books can be sent by mail postpaid, though when 
returned to the Library the borrower must pay expense of return, 
a privilege which is not used as often as one would expect. 

The cataloguing of books has been done from time to time. 
The first catalogue of the Library, enumerating 190 volumes, was 
published in the New England Farmer, in 1831. Later lists of 
books were published at intervals until a catalogue in pamphlet 
form, enumerating 414 volumes, was issued in 1854. Another 
catalogue, enumerating 1290 volumes, was published in 1867, and a 
complete catalogue was printed in 1873, occupying 155 octavo 
pages. Since that time no complete catalogue has been printed. 

In April 1919, an alphabetical list of authors and titles of the 
entire Library, enumerating some 22,000 volumes, was published 
and called Part I. Letters have been received from many persons 
in England and the United States commending this publication. 
One letter says : " It is a splendid bit of work beautifully turned out 
and owing to its comprehensiveness of infinite value to book col- 
lectors, students of horticultural literature, librarians and workers 
in horticulture generally." Another letter from the Royal Horti- 
cultural Society, of London, says : " This catalogue of the Library 
of your Society will be of very great value and interest to us and 
our large body of Fellows. " 

Part II, which is to be a classified arrangement of the same 
material contained in Part I under subject headings, is now ready 
for publication. As soon as it is possible to do so, the Trustees 
intend to publish this part. This should have been done at the time 
Part I was published, but owing to the disturbed condition of the 
printing trade and the increased cost of printing, the Trustees 
wisely felt that publication should be deferred until a more favor- 
able time. 

A new feature of the Society's work has been the publication of 



INAUGURAL MEETING, 1920 7 

Bulletins, two numbers of which have been issued. The object of 
the Bulletin is to present matters of interest concerning the acti- 
vities of the Society and to stimulate a greater interest in its work. 
It is hoped during the present year to continue the publication of 
these Bulletins at more frequent intervals. 

The first Bulletin contained a " Report on the Future Policy of 
the Society," signed by Messrs. Sargent, Farquhar, and Endicott, 
and "The Outlook for the Future," containing extracts from my 
inaugural address of last year. The second Bulletin contained 
suggestions in regard to "Membership" and facts relating to the 
" Library." I trust our members will seriously consider both these 
Bulletins, as they contain information and recommendations which, 
if carried out, would, I believe, enable us to increase our activities 
in many ways. 

The Treasurer holds twenty-one funds, which have been given 
from time to time to the Society by various friends, either during 
their lifetime or by will, with restrictions as to the use and appli- 
cation of the income from the same. By reason of changed condi- 
tions, it is now practically impossible to apply the income of some 
half-dozen of these funds in strict accord with the terms of the deed 
of trust or bequest. The Trustees believe that in those cases it 
would accord with the intent and desire of the various givers to 
have some slight changes made in these restrictions in order that 
the income from the funds may be used for purposes very nearly 
akin to those originally provided for. By proper application to the 
Supreme Court in Equity, it is proposed to have the terms of these 
various gifts modified pursuant to the equitable doctrine known as 
"cy pre 

The George Robert White Medal of Honor for the year 1 ( .)1 ( .) was 
awarded to Vilmorin-Andrieux & Company, the famous firm of 
French seedsmen and irardeners which has since L780 been active 
under its present name in matters relating to agriculture and horti- 
culture. A member of the fifth generation, in direct descent, of the 
\ ilmorins is now at the head of the firm which, in its long cart

8 MASSACHUSETTS HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY 

I have received a letter, under date of January the ninth, 1920, 
from Mr. Albert Cameron Burrage, enclosing a check for $1200, 
made payable to the Massachusetts Horticultural Society, the 
income of which is to be used for the purpose of promoting the 
cranberry industry in Massachusetts. The terms upon which this 
gift was given are as follows : 

" I hereby give the Horticultural Society twelve hundred dollars 
with the request that its income be used from time to time for the 
purchase of gold medals to be awarded by the Society to those resi- 
dents of Massachusetts, whether private individuals or public 
officials, who, in the judgment of the Trustees of this Society, or of 
committees appointed by them, have during a stated time, either 
by exhibition of cranberries, or cultivation of the cranberry vine, 
or scientific research, or technical writings, done the most for this 
industry." 

Mr. Burrage has in his greenhouses at Beverly Farms, the 
largest collection of orchids in this country. In view of the great 
Orchid Exhibition, March 24th to 28th, he suggests that 1920 be 
made a memorable orchid year, and to arouse a still greater interest 
in orchid culture, Mr. Burrage will show the different orchid plants 
as they bloom in their season from month to month from January to 
December throughout the year. He will exhibit a large collection 
of flowering orchid plants at every scheduled exhibition and also on 
January 31st, February 28th, April 10th, October 9th and December 
18th. It is desirable in connection with these exhibitions of orchids 
that other members of the Society should display interesting plants 
which will be recognized and rewarded by the Society. 

Last year, in looking through our Act of Incorporation, approved 
June 12, 1829, I found that the Trustees were unable to lay and 
collect assessments on members of the Society in excess of two 
dollars per annum. I then urged, and I now urge, that the Trus- 
tees be given full power to decide from time to time as to what fees 
are to be levied upon life and annual members which would involve 
an amendment to our charter. In view of the fact that there is a 
certain amount of opposition to such a change, the Trustees have 
decided to do nothing at present. The members of the Society 
should be willing to pay a larger assessment, which would assist 
the Society financially, and enable us to extend our work. In 



INAUGURAL MEETING, 1920 9 

increasing admission fees and assessments, it might be advisable 
to give a year's notice of such proposed change. Annual payments 
for those who have already joined the Society should not be 
changed. The fee for life membership is now thirty dollar-, which 
is lower than that of most other societies of equal standing and 
importance. Several Societies of late years have increased their 
fees. The Society of American Florists has raised its life member- 
ship fee from thirty to fifty dollars, and its annual fee from three 
to five dollars, and the life membership fee of the American R 
Society is fifty dollars. 

At the beginning of 1919, the membership of our Society con- 
sisted of: 

Honorary meinh. 3 

Corresponding members 42 45 



Life members 790 

Annual members 1 ( .)"> 985 

At the end of 1919, ">l Dew members (36 life and 15 annual have 
been added, but as there has been a loss by death and discontinu- 
ance, of 34, our increase i- only 17. or a total of 1002, the largest 
since 1876, when the membership was 1006. In the history oi the 
S iety, the largest membership was in 1871, when our mend 
were 1035 in number. It i- incredible to me that our membership i- 

-mall. Mr. Saltonstall stated in one of his addresses that thi 
were, in 1914, 14,400 Fellows in the Royal Horticultural Society of 
London. It cannot be that there are so few people interested in 
horticulture throughout this Commonwealth. The more I think 
of it, the more I am convinced that the Massachusetts Horticultural 
S iety is little known outside of Boston. The policy of the Society 
for year- has been Mich that its interests and activities have been 
centered in Boston and its vicinity, to Mich an extent that little 
assistance or information or instruction upon horticultural or ;t 
cultural subjects has ever been given outside of thi- immediate 
neighborhood. Considering that the Horticultural Society i- a 
state institution, free from Federal and State taxes, thi- policy, 

jay the least, i- an unwise one. 
The cause of horticulture can best be served at tin- time in Massa- 



10 MASSACHUSETTS HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY 

chusetts by an increase in our membership. I cannot urge too 
strongly upon our members the importance of helping the Trustees 
to increase the usefulness of the Society by obtaining new members 
from different parts of the Commonwealth, in order that we may 
have thousands instead of a thousand members. The fact that one 
member, who is neither a citizen of greater Boston, nor a Trustee, 
nor an officer of the Society, has obtained, during the past year 
twenty-two new members (fourteen life and eight annual), shows 
that it is possible, with proper inclination and energy to increase 
our membership. While we have added 51 new members this past 
year, this seems a small number when it is considered how many 
people there are who would be willing to become life or annual 
members if they were only approached in the right way. 

At the conclusion of his address the President called for the 
annual reports of the officers and chairmen of the various commit- 
tees for the previous year which were accepted and referred to the 
Committee on Publications. 

After the business part of the meeting a large audience listened 
with much interest to an illustrated lecture by E. H. Wilson who 
described and pictured an account of his sixth journey to the Far 
East in search of plants for American Gardens. 



REPORT OF THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES. 

By the Secretary. 



The Trustees have held six meetings during the year 1920 and a 
summary of the principal matters of business transacted is given 
herewith. 

January 9. It was voted to accept the offer of Albert C. Burr age 
establishing a fund of $1200 the income of which is to be awarded 
from time to time in gold medals for the promotion of the cranberry 
industry in Massachusetts. 

At the April meeting it was voted to award the Society's Special 
Diploma to the Arnold Arboretum for its exhibit of Japanese azaleas 



REPORT OF BOARD OF TRUSTEES, 1920 11 

at the March Exhibition and also to Albert C. Burrage for his 
exhibit of orchids at the same show. 

At the May meeting it was voted to hold a grand exhibition of 
roses and other plants in April, 1921, and an appropriation of $6000 
was made for prizes. 

Other votes adopted were as follows : 

That money prizes be offered during the year 1921 only at four 

exhibitions. 
That the Librarian be authorized to print Part 2 of the Catalogue of 

the Library. 
That the President appoint a special committee to revise the By- 
laws of the Society in order to establish more clearly the functions 
of the different committees and to report to the Board such changes 
as may be desirable. 

At the October meeting it was voted to invite the American Rose 
Society, the American Peony Society, and the New England Gladio- 
lus Society to hold their annual meetings and exhibitions of 1021 
in connection with the exhibitions of the Massachusetts Horticul- 
tural Society. 

At this meeting attention was called to the work of the ( Committee 
on Horticultural Quarantine and the necessity of raising a fund for 
its expenses. The object of this committee is to endeavor to secure 
some modification of the drastic regulations of Quarantine No. 37 
which was discouraging the interest in. horticulture and blocking 
its progress. An appropriation of 12000 was voted for this purr* 
An appropriation of S1000, in addition to the income of the special 
prize funds of the Society, was made for four additional exhibition- 
during the year 1921. 

At the December meeting Mr. SaltonstaH reported on the matter 
of several of the special prize funds of the Society, the term- of 
which had become impracticable to fulfil in recent years. He had 
thus far been able by legal procedure to obtain modification of the 
I [enry A. Gane Memorial Fund so that in future the income ma 

paid in prizes for chrysanthemums, preference to be given to varie- 
ties originated by the late 1 Henry A. Gaiie. Also he had found that 

the Levi Whitcomb Bequest was originally given to the S 



12 MASSACHUSETTS HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY 

without any conditions as to the use of the income therefrom and 
that the terms in force since the year 1870 were voted by the 
Society. He therefore recommended the repeal of these terms and 
to substitute in their place that the income be awarded hereafter 
in prizes for potatoes of superior quality, preference to be given to 
new varieties. The report of Mr. Saltonstall w r as approved and 
accepted. 

The George Robert White Medal of Honor for the year 1920 was 
awarded to George Forrest of England for his work in the intro- 
duction of desirable garden plants from southwest China, and the 
Albert Cameron Burrage Medal for the promotion of the cranberry 
industry in Massachusetts was awarded to H. J. Franklin, of East 
Wareham, on account of his paper on "Cape Cod Cranberry 
Frosts." 

The special committee appointed to nominate the standing 
committees of the Society for the year 1921 submitted the following 
list of nominations w T hich was approved and accepted.

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE OX PRIZES AND 
EXHIBITIONS. 

By Thomas Allen, Chairman. 



The history of this Society is being written and recorded from 
day to day and without encroaching upon the reports of other 
committees it can be said that never before in the whole history 
of the Society has an exhibition been staged comparable with the 
great exhibition of orchids and spring-flowering plants held March 
24-28, 1920. It can be said further that never before has such a 
wonderful exhibition been seen anywhere. 

The great feature which occupied the entire floor of the lecture 
hall was the exhibit of orchids by Albert ('. Burrage. It was 
arranged to simulate natural conditions; the .epiphytal species, or 
tree-growing orchids, attached to the bark of imitation tree trunk-. 
and the terrestrial species, those generally found on the ground, 
displayed on moss-covered rocky banks. 

The exhibition was called the Boston Orchid Show, although as 
a matter of fact prizes were offered in more than ninety different 
es of spring-flowering plants and ("very class was filled. 

The first impression and it was one that lasted was of 
bewildering profusion. The halls were SO filled with wonderful 
things that there was little room left for the crowds of people who 
came t<> see them. 

If the aphorism i- true that "Flowers are mosl beautiful as 
growing in their natural surroundings" then the K. & J. Farquhar 
Company's exhibit of Regal lilies and Kaempferi azalea-, plunged 
in earth and backed with ;i screen of evergreens, must be consid- 



14 MASSACHUSETTS HORTICULTUEAL SOCIETY 

ered as one of the most successful. It was simple, attractive, and 
most effective. 

Mr. Hunnewell's magnificent group of the Miss Louisa Hunne- 
well azalea was very effectively placed in the center of the large hall. 
It was arranged with an abundance of green foliaged plants in an 
irregular form of grouping and, on the whole, could not have been 
improved. 

Nearby, Mrs. C. G. Weld's exhibit filled a corner with a mass of 
color that was carefully studied and harmoniously arranged. A 
touch of blue on the top gave a key-note that attracted the atten- 
tion of everyone. Blue is a rare and precious color among flowers 
and this note of pure blue was the only one in the whole exhibition. 
It was criticized as being too conspicuous, but its rarity emphasized 
it and to most observers it seemed remarkably well placed. 

One of the most charming features of the exhibition was Thomas 
Roland's beautifully arranged collection of acacias with its tracery 
of exquisite foliage and flowers. 

In the center of this section, surrounded by Mr. Roland's acacias, 
was placed upon a slightly raised platform an exhibit such as one 
may see, possibly, once in a lifetime, the Kurume azaleas. The 
entry into the floral world of such a novelty, in such profusion, 
perfectly grown and flowered, was an event of first importance. 
The exquisite delicacy of form and color in these flowers is beyond 
words to describe. 

From time to time criticisms have been made on the installation 
of some of the exhibitions of the Society. The question that arises 
is Why is not the grower often a good exhibitor? or, Why does he not 
install his exhibits to better advantage? One would naturally 
infer that a person who can produce the exquisite things that are 
shown in the halls would know what to do with them after he has 
produced them, and how to exhibit them to best advantage. 

The answer to the question is a seeming paradox. The grower 
does not install his exhibit to best advantage because he loves his 
flowers, his creations, so well. He loves them all so well that he 
does not wish to give any one preeminence over another, and so, 
treating them all without prejudice, he tries to make each one 
occupy a dominant position in his exhibit. The result is a monoto- 
nous repetition of form and color values which inevitably sacrifices 



REPORT OF COMMITTEE OX PLANTS AND FLOWERS, 1920 15 

the object he wishes to attain, that object being an effective 
ensemble. 

The secret of good installation lies in the ability of the person 
making it to visualize the whole effect of his exhibit before it is 
installed. Then, if he is a person of cultivated taste and endowed 
with a highly sensitive color sense, success must folio w. 

These are simply suggestions given with the hope that the exhi- 
bitions may be so improved that visitors will feel inclined to 
believe that there was once on a time a Garden of Eden and that 
they have been privileged to see a small portion of it. 



REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE OX PLANTS AND 

FLOWERS. 

By Samuel J. Goddard, Chairman. 



In presenting this report of the Committee on Plants and Flowers 
for the year 1920 there were so many outstanding features offered 
for judgment and recognition that we cannot do justice to the 
various exhibitors without giving them special mention. 

The March Exhibition of Orchids and Other Plants brought out 
a wonderful collection of interesting plants of which orchids formed 
the conspicuous feature. There were 56 classes of orchids and 108 
classes of other plants. The orchid exhibit of Albert C. Burn 
which occupied the entire lecture hall alone contained 1500 plant-. 
In addition to his exhibit Mr. Burrage distributed leaflet- containing 
information on the orchid family and also showed many volumes 
from his library with colored plates of the different genera. The 
entire exhibit was an educational feature of great important 

In addition to the March show Mr. Burrage made monthly 
exhibits of orchid- showing the different species as they bloom in 
their season throughout the year. It was indeed a memorable 
orchid year. Other notable exhibit- of orchids at this exhibition 
were Ernest B. Dane's superb collection of 12 varieties ^i Cypri- 
pediums of merit; Arthur X. Cooley's choice display of rare cut 



16 MASSACHUSETTS HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY 

blooms ; and the many superb plants of rare genera shown by the 
Julius Roehrs Co. 

The exhibit of the Kurume azaleas by the Arnold Arboretum was 
the largest display of these plants ever publicly exhibited in any 
part of the world. It comprised 49 named varieties a list of which 
with their names and colors is appended to this report. Also the 
R. & J. Farquhar Co.'s garden exhibit as mentioned in the report 
of the Committee on Prizes and Exhibitions is worthy of a second 
mention. Other noteworthy features of the March Exhibition 
were the groups of flowering acacias arranged by Thomas Roland; 
the flowering and foliage plants of Mrs. C. G. Weld; and the 
magnificent specimens of the Miss Louisa Hunnewell azalea, 
originated by Theophilus D. Hatfield, Superintendent of the 
Walter Hunnewell estate at Wellesley. Mr. Hatfield assures the 
committee that this beautiful plant is perfectly hardy. It is a 
welcome addition to our spring-flowering shrubs. 

At the exhibition of May 15 a notable exhibit was made by Arthur 
Lyman of Waltham, George F. Stewart, gardener, of four varieties 
of Calceolaria Stewarti, including the most recent var. Lymani, a 
very rich velvety crimson of dwarf habit. All of the varieties of 
Calceolaria were raised by Mr. Stewart. 

On June 19 J. T. Butterworth of Framingham exhibited a group 
of Miltonia vexillaria. It was admirably arranged against a back- 
ground of hemlock branches. Roses were not exhibited to any 
extent at the Rose Exhibition, neither were peonies, but at the 
August Exhibition gladioli were shown in great numbers and proved 
that this flower is becoming increasingly popular in the outdoor 
garden. At this exhibition a magnificent specimen of Dipladenia 
splendcns was shown by Arthur Lyman of Waltham, George F. 
Stewart, gardener. It was good to see this old favorite again in our 
exhibition and we hope to be favored with more of this type in the 
future. 

A conspicuous feature of the November Exhibition was the dis- 
play of 43 varieties of Winter Flowering begonias by Thomas E. 
Proctor of Topsfield, arranged by James Marlborough, gardener. 
It was a fine example of this comparatively new type of begonia 
in a beautiful variety of colors the art of the hybridizer is presenting 
to the world. The arrangement was faultless and the plants were 
grown to perfection. 



REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON PLANTS AND FLOWERS, 1920 17 

. The majority of the exhibitions of the year were not up to the 
usual standard of quality, no doubt caused in large measure by the 
very severe winter of 1919-1920, the shortage of coal, the lack of 
skilled labor, and a backward season. This however does not in 
any way pertain to the Spring Exhibition which was marvellous 
in its variety arrangement.

KEPORT OF COMMITTEE ON FRUITS, 1920 23 

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON FRUITS. 

By Edward B. Wilder, Chairman. 



The decided improvement in the exhibits of fruits noted in the 
report for 1919 has continued during 1920, but not greatly 
advanced. The "war conditions, shortage of labor, and poor 
transportation" referred to in that report have continued, indeed, 
seem to have increased, but the special inducements offered in 
prizes have encouraged the amateur growers of fruit to exhibit 
somewhat more freely and the reestablishment of the third prize 
is recommended. 

The display of strawberries at the Exhibition, June 26, was 
small, Hillcrest Gardens, Weston, winning all the prizes. The 
difficulty of arranging a schedule a year in advance for small 
fruits and setting a fixed date for an exhibition, irrespective of 
New England's fluctuating weather conditions, acted unfavorably 
as in this exhibition. 

At the Exhibition, July 10, Hillcrest Gardens received first prize 
for red cherries and Mrs. M. J. Merrill, Medford, first prize for the 
Royal Ann (Napoleon), a yellow cherry. In the classes for cur- 
rants Hillcrest Gardens took first with Fay's Prolific for a red 
variety and John Bauernfeind, first for White Imperial, a white 
variety. In gooseberries John Bauernfeind took first for Colum- 
bus. In the classes for strawberries Louis Graton won first for 
his St. Martin and Hillcrest Gardens second for William Belt. 

The first exhibits of apples and pears for the season were made 
August 14 with Williams, Sweet Bough, Yellow Transparent 
apples, and Clapp's Favorite pear. Greensboro and Champion 
peaches also were shown. 

At the exhibition of SeptembeT 11 the following varieties were 
shown: Gravenstein, Hubbardston, Maiden Blush, and Porter 
apples; Bartlett, Worden Seckel, President, pear-; Belle of Georgia, 
Champion peaches; and Satsuma, Lombard, Green Gage plums. 
George P. Stewart, gardener to Arthur Lyman, was awarded fir^t 

prize for a display of black and white foreign grapes, the Black 



24 MASSACHrSETTS HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY 

Hamburg and Muscatel. The disastrous effects of the past severe 
winter were evident in the exceedingly small displays of peaches 
and plums at the summer and early autumn exhibitions. 

There was a good display of apples at the show of September 25. 
Many of the varieties, however, were picked prematurely and in 
the opinion of the committee should have been scheduled for a 
later exhibition. Such varieties as Baldwin, R. I. Greening, Rox- 
bury Russet, Winter Banana, Northern Spy, and other varieties 
of apples, also Dana Hovey pears, which would not be mature for a 
month or more. An excellent display of pears was made by Mrs. 
Elbridge Torrey of Dorchester and Dr. Walter G. Kendall of 
Atlantic, both winning three first prizes. 

The exhibit of grapes was very fine, one of the best for years, 
showing splendid cultivation and care in growing. John Bauern- 
feind of Medford took four first prizes for Brighton, Concord, 
Moore's Diamond, and Wilder, and Peter Andersen of Woburn 
three first prizes for Eaton, Niagara, and Worden. Mr. Andersen 
exhibited a new seedling grape, No. 17, which greatly interested the 
committee. The berries were very large, dark purple in color, 
and the flavor good. It was awarded a gratuity. 

There was a fine display of apples at the Autumn Exhibition, 
November 6-7, nearly all the classes having entries. The classes 
for fifty specimens of one variety were well represented. Allison P. 
Smith of Stowe won first prize for fifty Baldwins and first for fifty 
Mcintosh ; Herbert A. Clark of Belmont won first for fifty Sutton ; 
and Hill crest Gardens first for fifty crabapples. John Bauernfeind 
received first for four varieties of native grapes and Edward B. 
"Wilder of Dorchester, first prize for Anjou, Lawrence, and Vicar 
pears. 

The display of quinces was the largest seen in the hall for years 
and was very attractive. Isaac H. Locke of Belmont took first 
prize for this fruit with twelve specimens of Orange. 



REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON VEGETABLES, 1920 25 

» 

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON VEGETABLES. 

By William N. Craig, Chairman. 



The Committee on Vegetables desires to report that the displays 
of vegetables made at the various exhibitions of the Society held 
in 1920 were on the whole very satisfactory. Competition was in 
some cases less spirited than we would like to have seen; this was 
not surprising when it is remembered that inducements in the way 
of money premiums were comparatively small and that a large 
proportion of the amount offered came from Miss Marian Roby 
Case of Weston, without whose generous pecuniary aid several 
exhibitions could not have been held. 

The quality of vegetables shown was uniformly good and it 
was particularly encouraging to note the good competition in the 
classes allotted to collections and their effective staging. The 
season proved to be a favorable one for all varieties of vegetables, 
the growing season was a long one, and even quite tender kinds 
remained unscathed by frost until November. 

The Win. B. H. Dowse Challenge Trophy, offered to the exhibitor 
scoring the greatest number of points in the vegetable classes, was 
captured by Hillcrest Gardens, a popular and well-merited award. 
The statement is occasionally heard and sometimes believed that 
a vegetable show is unattractive and does not interest the general 
public as do flowers and plants, but anyone who attended the 
exhibitions during the past year ninst have been impressed with 
the tact that vegetables, even if shown only in moderate quantities, 

attracted visitors fully as much as any other exhibits Staged and 

at the November show the vegetable display made in the small 
hull proved more of a potent attraction than any of the other 
exhibits. 

It is somewhat discouraging to the committee to note the gradual 

elimination of vegetables from the schedules. The Massachusetts 

Horticultural Society was formed to encourage the culture oi 

plants, Bowers, fruit-, ami vegetables and until comparatively 

recent years li\c<l up to this high ideal. Now unfortunately it i- 



26 MASSACHUSETTS HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY 

becoming more and more of a floricultural society and fruits and 
vegetables appear to be viewed somewhat in the light of necessary 
nuisances. Not many years ago the bulk of our vegetable exhibi- 
tors were commercial men and these same keen, wide-awake, and 
able men comprised our vegetable committees. Now we regret 
to say we have lost nearly all of this most desirable element. 
Alienated exhibitors can be regained, however, if the Society's 
present policy is changed. Competition can be stimulated best 
and interest quickened and retained by holding monthly shows from 
June until November and by appropriating a fair share of the 
prizes for vegetable exhibits. An occasional big vegetable show 
accomplishes far less while costing much more than a number of 
small exhibitions. 

The committee will freely admit that large floriculture displays 
in early spring will attract the multitudes and help fill the 
exchequer; the exhibits at these shows, however, are all grown 
under glass. If we are to broaden our Society and secure the 
sympathetic support of the great mass of garden lovers we must 
encourage the culture of open air subjects in every legitimate way. 
This cannot be done unless the management of this Society departs 
in some measure from its present policy. 

We do not need to be told that New England needs more tillers 
of her brown soil, must produce more food at home, and in this way 
help in some measure to reduce the cost of living so that it will 
compare favorably with other populous centers of the land. The 
more, therefore, we can do to encourage intensive culture of the 
soil in the production of food crops in our gardens by lectures, 
advice, and exhibitions, the better will we be following the policy 
promulgated by the founders of our Society, and the more we will 
secure and retain the regard of the ever-growing army of amateur 
gardeners. 

Our slogan might well be "Help New England to feed herself " 
and with this watchword and an assurance of the great benefits of 
daylight saving being continued we can reasonably hope for a 
continued increase in home-grown food products. 

The Committee on Vegetables offers these criticisms in the most 
friendly spirit with an earnest desire to benefit this honored Society 
and make it a still greater factor for good in the community. 



REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON CHILDREN'S GARDENS, 1920 27 

Nine exhibitions of vegetables have been held during the year 
and in addition to the prizes listed in the Schedule the following 
special awards have been made :

September 11. Albert C. Burrage was awarded Honorable 
Mention for the new tomato, The Diener. 

November 6. M. S. Fickett of Chelsea was awarded a Vote of 
Thanks for an interesting exhibit of pollenized sweet corn, showing

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON CHILDREN'S 

GARDENS. 

By James Wheeler, Chairman. 



The annual exhibition of the products of children's gardens was 
held Saturday and Sunday, September 4 and 5, 1920. Both the 
large and small halls were well filled and there was keen competi- 
tion in every class. In single classes of beets, carrots, potato 
and beans there were from forty to eighty entries. 

In the lecture hall there was an interesting display by the Mary 
Hemenway School of Roxbury, comprising plants, flowers, vi 
tables, canned products, and samples of the industrial work carried 

on by this school under the superintendence of Miss L Gertrude 

Howes. This exhibit attracted much attention and was awarded 

a Silver Medal. 

A special appropriation was made by the Trustees of the Society 



28 MASSACHUSETTS HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY 

in order to encourage the interest in children's gardening through- 
out the state. This appropriation was used in awarding Silver 
and Bronze Medals to those maintaining their gardens in good 
condition during the season. Many entries were received for these 
medals and the plan proved of much value in increasing the interest 
of the children in their work. Money prizes amounting to $300 
were offered at the exhibition, every dollar of which was awarded. 

At the suggestion of the Chairman a conference of the garden 
teachers and supervisors was held during the exhibition to talk 
over the work and to discuss the best methods for maintaining the 
interest of the young people along agricultural lines. Mr. D. W. 
O'Brien, the supervisor of the Boston school gardens, favored that 
some token — a ribbon or a card — be given to exhibitors not 
receiving a prize, if their exhibits had been worthy. This sugges- 
tion was favorably received. 

Miss Annie L. Burke of Brockton spoke appreciatively of the 
medals given out by the Society last year and the incentive they had 
been to the young gardeners. It developed that in many cities 
and towns there had been appropriate exercises connected with 
their presentation. 

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON LECTURES AND 

PUBLICATIONS. 

By Fred A. Wilson, Chairman. 



The spring lecture course for 1920 was a variant from preceding 
practice. The committee tried the plan of a course of lectures by 
one man, in an attempt to get a connected series, and a presenta- 
tion of material not commonly obtainable from other easy sources. 
We were fortunate in our choice of Professor W. J. V. Osterhout of 
Harvard University, who gave us a series of six lectures entitled 
"The Living Plant" which were of high quality in every respect. 

There is always the question of the desirability of presenting more 
common things, even illustrated bench methods of preparing soil, 
sowing, cuttings, transplanting, and repotting; but your committee 
feels that the principal course may well be upon matters of advanced 



REPORT OF SECRETARY AND LIBRARIAN, 1920 29 

horticulture, and have followed this opinion by securing Professor 
Osterhout for another course for the lecture season of 1921 which 
will deal with a somewhat more chemical side of horticulture. 
Notices of this course will give complete information. 

The committee for 1920 also has arranged for a series of explana- 
tory work, through lecturers or docents, accompanying the exhi- 
bitions of the year 1921. This was possible because of the generous 
offer of Miss Marian R. Case to pay the expenses of such work. 

The committee has reduced the published transactions of the 
Society to one volume for 1920, containing annual reports, com- 
mittee reports, inaugural address, and such matters. General 
horticultural matters will not be included. It is proposed to do 
more with Bulletins, which will be issued irregularly and not at 
stated intervals, and which chiefly will contain horticultural 
information. The committee would be glad to receive suggestions 
at any time relating to its work. 



KKPORT OF THE SECRETARY AND LIBRARIAN 



Two principal features stand out prominently in the activity 

the Society during the year 1920. The first is the Grand Exhibi- 
tion of Orchid> and Other Plants in March, details of which will 
be found in the reports of the ( 'ommittee on Prize- and Exhibitions 
and the (Ommittee on Plants and Flowers. The other feature is 
the stand taken by the Society in regard to the drastic regulations 
of the Federal Horticultural Board's Quarantine No. :;7. In eon- 
junction with the Horticultural Society of New York, the Penn- 
sylvania Horticultural Society, and numerous other horticultural 
organizations throughout the country ;i strong protest is being 
made of these regulations which are practically an embargo on the 
introduction of new and desirable garden plants Mini an obstacle 

to horticultural pn 

In addition to the March exhibit of orchids Mr. Albert C. Bun 

has made monthly exhibits of orchid plants in flower showing the 
plants as they Come into bloom month by month throughout the 

ar. 



30 MASSACHUSETTS HORTICULTUKAL SOCIETY 

The George Robert White Medal of Honor for the year 1920 was 
awarded to Mr. George Forrest of England for his work in the 
introduction of desirable garden plants from southwest China. 

The Albert Cameron Burrage Medal for the promotion of the 
cranberry industry in the state was awarded to Dr. Henry J. 
Franklin of East Wareham on account of a paper on Cape Cod 
Cranberry Frosts published in the Monthly Weather Review of 
the United States Department of Agriculture, Supplement No. 16. 

Mr. William B. H. Dowse has continued his offer of a handsome 
silver vase to be awarded to the exhibitor of vegetables obtaining 
the greatest number of points as arranged in the Schedule of Prizes. 
It was won this year by the Hillcrest Gardens of Weston. 

The Hillcrest Prizes for the best vegetable gardens in Middlesex 
County, Massachusetts, cultivated by amateurs, were awarded as 
follows : 

First, to Mrs. A. L. Hentzi, Waltham. 

Second, to Robert H. Trask, Weston. 

Third, to Mrs. Gertrude Hersey, Waltham. 

Miss Marian R. Case, by whom the prizes amounting to $115.00 
were offered, states that there were forty-two entries for the Hill- 
crest Prizes, and that it is estimated that more than $4,000.00 worth 
of garden products were harvested from them. 

With the cooperation of the American Iris Society at the May 
Exhibition, the American Sweet Pea Society in July, and the 
American Gladiolus Society in August these exhibitions were of 
more than ordinary interest. 

A course of six lectures on "Plant Life" was given during Febru- 
ary, March, and April by Professor W. J. V. Osterhout of Harvard 
University. 

Part 2 of the Transactions of the Society, the last to be issued 
under this title, was distributed on May 18. Two numbers of the 
Bulletin have been issued during the year. Number 3, entitled 
"Kurume Azaleas" and Number 4, "Horticultural Conference on 
Quarantine No. 37 Held in New York, June 15, 1920." 

The Library. 

The preparation of the second part of the Catalogue of the 
Library has been resumed during the year. This part will consist 



REPORT OF SECRETARY AND LIBRARIAN, 1920 31 

of a classified arrangement of the books printed in Part I, and is 
now nearly ready for publication. The two parts will be issued 
in one volume at an early date. 

Further additions have accrued to the John D. W. French Fund 
during the year increasing it to S10, 188.00. The income of this 
fund is used for the purchase of books for the library. 

Members of the Society are again reminded of their privilege to 
have books sent to them by mail at the Society's expense; to be 
returned at the borrower's expense. 

Another lot of 1285 pamphlets has been bound in board covers 
during the year thus ensuring their proper care and preservation. 
This makes a total of 3285 pamphlets treated in this manner.

ANNUAL REPORT 



FOR THE YEAR 1921 




BOSTON 

NINETEEN HUNDRED AND I'WENTI-TWO 



Massachusetts Horticultural Society. 
1921. 



Beginning with the year 1920 a change is made in the publica- 
tions of the Society. Since 1874 the "Transactions" have been 
issued in two parts every year, with the exception of the years 1895, 
1896, and 1897, when a third part was added containing a list of 
accessions to the library. Part 1 contained reports of lectures 
delivered before the Society and Part 2, the annual reports of the 
various officers and committees. 

The necessity of a more prompt issue of the horticultural papers 
is recognized and the publication of the "Bulletin" renders it 
unnecessary to continue the former methods. It is now proposed 
to use the "Bulletin" for the horticultural papers and to publish 
an annual report containing the reports of officers and committees.

ANNUAL REPORT FOR THE YEAR 1921. 



Inaugural Meeting. 



The Inaugural Meeting of the Massachusetts Horticultural 
Society for the year 1921 was held at Horticultural Hall, Boston, 
on Saturday, January 18, at two o'clock, with President Endicott 
in the Chair. 

The retiring President, William C. Endicott, delivered a parting 
address, reviewing the work of the year 1920, the business trans- 
acted by the Board of Trustees, and making certain recommenda- 
tions for the future work of the Society. 

At the close of his address Mr. Endicott presented the incoming 
President, Albert C. Barrage, who gave an inaugural address 
entitled "A Plea for the Exotic" which has been published in full 
in the Society's Bulletin Number 5. 

President Burrage then called for the annual reports of the officers 
and chairmen of the various committees which are summarized on 
the following pages. 

The Board of Trustees. 

The Secretary presented a report of the business transacted by 
the Board of Trustees during the year 1921. 

January 17. On motion of Prof. Sargent Mr. Henry 11. Richard- 
son was appointed ;• Trustee for the current year to fill a vacancy 
existing in the Hoard. It was voted to approve the addition of 
three exhibitions for the year L921, Mi^s Marian R. Case having 
agreed to provide the prizes for them. It was voted that the 
President appoint an Advisory Committee of five members ^i the 
Board of which the President should be chairman. The President

8 MASSACHUSETTS HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY 

appointed as the other members of this committee Messrs. Sargent, 
Saltonstall, Farquhar, and Roland. 

The following appointments were voted for the current year: 
Walter Hunnewell as Treasurer, William P. Rich as Secretary pro 
tern also Librarian and Superintendent of the Building. On motion 
of Mr. Farquhar it was voted that a committee of two be appointed 
to have supervision and superintendence of the Society's building. 
Messrs. Burrage and Farquhar were appointed as this committee. 

On motion of Mr. Wilson it was voted that the President of the 
Society be a member ex officio of all committees with authority to 
call and attend meetings but without the right to vote at them. 

On motion of Prof. Sargent it was voted that the President 
appoint a committee of three, the President as chairman, to revise 
the By-laws of the Society. The President appointed Messrs. 
Saltonstall and Sargent as the other two members of this com- 
mittee. 

The President suggested the importance of a closer touch with 
the members of the Society and read a draft of a proposed letter 
to the members encouraging a greater interest in the work of the 
Society. On motion of Mr. Wilson it was voted to approve the 
letter and that a copy be sent to every member of the Society 
together with the Bulletin containing the President's Inaugural 
Address. 

May 5. It was voted to confirm the appropriation of $4,500 
for advertising the recent Rose Exhibition as previously recom- 
mended by the Committee on Prizes and Exhibitions. It was voted 
that a Spring Exhibition be held in 1922 at which bulb plants in 
flower should be the principal feature. An appropriation not to 
exceed $6,000 was voted for this exhibition and a committee, con- 
sisting of Messrs. Burrage, Allen, Farquhar, and Roland, was 
appointed with authority to frame a schedule for such an exhibi- 
tion. The President suggested also an exhibition of ferns and wild 
flowers during the present or the succeeding year and it was voted 
that the Committee on Prizes and Exhibitions be given full author- 
ity to prepare a schedule. 

On motion of Prof. Sargent the following named persons were 
elected to Corresponding Membership in the Society: 

Mr. W. R. Dykes, Secretary Royal Horticultural Society. 



THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES, 1921 9 

Mr. Fred J. Chittenden, Wisley Gardens, England. 

M. Jacques de Vilmorin, Paris, France. 

September 8. The President spoke of the death of Mr. John 
K. M. L. Farquhar since the last meeting of the Board. Mr. 
Farquhar had been a member of the Board of Trustees for fifteen 
years and President of the Society in the years 1913, 1914, and 1915. 
His death is a loss to the Society as well as to the horticultural 
interests of a much wider range. 

To fill the vacancy existing in the Board on account of the death 
of Mr. Farquhar Miss Marian R. Case was unanimously elected 
a Trustee for the remainder of the current year. To fill the vacan- 
cies existing in the numerous committees of which Mr. Farquhar 
was a member, Mr. Burrage was appointed a member of the Com- 
mittee on the George Robert White Medal of Honor; Mr. Wilson 
on the Committee on the Supervision of the Society's Building; 
and Mr. Allen on the Advisory Committee. It was voted that the 
vacancies in the Committee on Lectures and Publications and on 
Prizes and Exhibitions remain unfilled for the remainder of the year. 

The President offered the following statement: 

Boston, September S, 1921. 
Board of Trustee-. 

Massachusetts Horticultural Society, 
Gentlemen: 

I hereby propose in writing, at your meeting now being held this 
8th day of September, 1921, which is at least two months before 
the next annual meeting of the Society, which this year comes on 
November 19th, the following amendments to the by-laws of the 
Massachusetts Horticultural Society. 

Albert ('. Burrage. 

He offered also a list of the proposed amendments which were 
duly discussed by the members and on motion of Mr. Endicotf it 
was voted to adopt the statement of the President and to approve 
the amendments to the By-laws a- corrected at the meeting. 

It was voted that the Committee on Exhibitions be given full 
charge of all arrangements for the exhibition of tropical ferns, 
tropical orchids, and other plants, to be given at Horticultural Hall. 



10 MASSACHUSETTS HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY 

September 22-25, with full power to allot space for exhibits thereat 
and to change the same from time to time and to make such adver- 
tisements of the same as in their discretion is expedient, but at a 
cost of not exceeding $500. 

The President presented a communication suggesting an exhibi- 
tion of native ferns and wild flowers in the spring of 1922. He 
stated that at the Native Orchid Exhibition in April of the present 
year it became apparent that many members of the Society were 
deeply interested in the native ferns used in connection with the 
arrangement of that exhibition and would appreciate seeing a com- 
prehensive exhibit of them. He had already done much work upon 
such an exhibition and had gathered a large part of the material 
for it. He further suggested that a special committee be appointed 
to take charge of the matter with full power to arrange such an 
exhibition if, in their discretion, it seemed expedient to do so; 
such committee to have the right to authorize such exhibition, to 
fix the date for it, to advertise it, and to determine the admission 
price to be charged. 

He also offered to guarantee the Society that the receipts shall 
at least equal the expenditures for advertising the exhibition, set- 
ting it up and transporting the plants to and from such exhibition. 

It was voted that a special committee of three be appointed, of 
which the President shall be the chairman, to consider the matter 
of the proposed native fern exhibition in the spring of 1922, with an 
appropriation of $2,000 for expenses of the exhibition, advertising, 
etc. 

The President appointed as the other members of this committee 
Messrs. Sargent and Richardson. 

It was voted to confirm the appropriation of $4,773 for the 
schedule of prizes for the exhibition of September 22-25, 1921, and 
$200 for the lecture and Bulletin in connection with it. 

On motion of Prof. Sargent the following named persons were 
elected to corresponding membership in the Society: 

Mr. C. E. Lane-Poole, Conservator of Forests, Perth, Western 
Australia. 

Mr. J. F. Bailey, Director, Botanic Gardens, Adelaide, South 
Australia. 

Mr. J. Cronin, Curator, Botanic Gardens, Melbourne, Victoria. 



THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES, 1921 11 

Mr. Alister Clark, Glennara, Bulla, Victoria. 

Mr. J. H. Maiden, Director and Government Botanist, Sydney, 
New South Wales. 

Dr. L. Cockayne, "Xgaio," Wellington, New Zealand. 

Mr. David Tannock, Supt. of Botanic Gardens, Dunedin, New 
Zealand. 

Mr. L. Rodway, Government Botanist and Secretary, Botanic 
Gardens, Hobart, Tasmania. 

October 7. Communications from W. R. Dykes and F. J. Chit- 
tenden were read expressing appreciation of the honor of election 
to corresponding membership in the Society. 

The President spoke of the proposed amendments to the By-laws 
of the Society and it was voted that the revised draft of the amend- 
ments to the By-laws of the Massachusetts Horticultural Society 
presented at this meeting by the President be and the same are 
approved. It was voted to authorize voting on the various amend- 
ments by Sections at the Annual Meeting of the Society in Novem- 
ber. 

On motion of Mr. Endicott it was voted to appoint John S. Ames 
Treasurer of the Society to succeed Walter Hunnewell, deceased, 
and on motion of Mr. Webster it was voted to appoint Mr. Ames a 
Trustee for the remainder of the current year. It was further voted 
that the bond of the Treasurer be made $25,000 at the expense of 
the Society. 

The President stated that on account of the large financial deficit 
for the last two years the Advisory Committee recommended a 
reduction of the appropriation for prizes for the year L922 and on 
motion of Prof. Sargent it was voted that the appropriation for 
prizes for the year 1922 be made 82,000 to include the income of the 
special prize 1 funds of the Society, also that the prizes previously 
voted for the Spring Exhibition be limited to the Bulb Schedule 
already published. 

The special committee on the award of the George Robert White 
Medal of Honor for the year L921 reported the name of Mr-. Louisa 

Yeomans King of Alma. Michigan, for this award. Prof. Sargent, 
for the committee, stated that it was considered desirable to honor 
a woman prominent in horticulture, in recognition of her service 

to horticulture in increasing the love of plants and gardens among 



12 MASSACHUSETTS HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY 

the women of the United States by her success as an organizer and 
manager of their garden clubs, by her public addresses and books 
about gardens, and by the example of her enthusiasm and industry. 
It was voted that the George Robert White Medal of Honor for 
the year 1921 be awarded to Mrs. Louisa Yeomans King. 

On motion of Mr. Webster it was voted that the Treasurer be 
requested to present at each meeting of the Board a financial state- 
ment covering the receipts, expenses, and appropriations to the 
date of the meeting. 

On motion of Prof. Sargent Mr. Gurney W T ilson, Editor of the 
Orchid Review, was elected to corresponding membership in the 
Society. 

Prizes and Exhibitions. 

Thomas Allen, Chairman of the Committee on Prizes and 
Exhibitions, presented the following report : 

To anyone who reads attentively the published Transactions of 
the Massachusetts Horticultural Society it must become evident 
that in the reports of the various officers and committees there is a 
great deal of duplicate effort and repetition, causing such reports to 
be unnecessarily voluminous. Largely on account of this condi- 
tion a committee was appointed to so adjust and amend the exist- 
ing By-laws of the Society that the duties and functions of officers 
and committees are now more clearly defined, and as these amend- 
ments have been accepted by the Society, it is hoped that from this 
time on the above-mentioned superfluities will be obviated. 

Bearing in mind these facts your Committee on Prizes and 
Exhibitions makes its report as concise as possible. It has gath- 
ered together some comparative figures which should be of interest. 

The principal duty of this committee is to prepare a schedule of 
exhibitions and prizes covering the whole year, of course, under 
instruction and supervision of the Board of Trustees. In pursu- 
ance of this duty your committee, after holding several meetings 
and giving the matter due consideration, issued a pamphlet of 
fifty-one pages covering the field of this particular phase of the 
Society's activities. A supplementary schedule of eight pages 
covering the Spring Bulb Exhibition for March, 1922, has also 



PRIZES AND EXHIBITIONS, 1921 13 

been prepared and issued. This was necessary in order to give 
the exhibitors ample time for preparation. 

Besides the ten regular exhibitions authorized by the Trustees, 
two special and unusual exhibitions were held which do not appear 
in either schedule. These were the Native Orchid Exhibition in 
May and the Grand Exhibition of Tropical Ferns, Orchids, and 
Other Plants, in September. The latter necessitated the issuance 
of a short schedule covering 65 classes. 

In cooperation with the American Rose Society a Grand Exhibi- 
tion of Roses and Other Plants was held April 6 to 10, with the fol- 
lowing results: 86 classes were scheduled with 86,789.00 offered in 
prizes. 72 classes were filled and $5,085.00 in prizes including cost 
of medals were awarded. The price of admission to this exhibition 
was placed at $1.00. The receipts at the ticket office, and from 
trade tickets issued at half-price, were $6,563.00. The expenses, 
including advertising and installation, came to 84,218.00, showing 
a net profit of $2,345.00. But if we included in the expense account 
the prizes awarded we have a horse of another color. Prizes 
awarded, 85,085.00; expenses, 84,218.00; total, $9,303.00. Re- 
ceipts, $6,563.00, showing an actual deficit of $2, 740.00. 

The next exhibition when an admission fee was charged was the 
Grand Exhibition of Tropical Ferns, Orchids, and Other Plants, 
September 22 to 25, with the following results: 05 classes were 
scheduled, with 84,773.00 offered in prizes. 50 classes were filled, 
and $2,275.00 in cash prizes and 82,000.00 in medals were awarded. 
The price of admission was fifty cents, receipts from sale of tickets, 
$555.50, general expense, $866.30, showing a deficit of $310.80. 
If we include prizes and medals in the expense account we find a 
deficit of $4,585.80, a return of about 12% on the cost. 

The third pay exhibition was the Grand Exhibition of Plants, 
Flowers, Fruits, and Vegetables held November 2 to 6, with the 
following results: 120 classes were scheduled and 74 filled. 13,103.00 
were offered in cash prizes and medals. $1,319.00 in cash prizes 
and $168.00 in medals were awarded. The price of admission was 
again fifty cents, receipts from sale of tickets, $455.00, general 
expense, 8404.75, net profit, $50.25. But if we include prizes and 
medals in the expense account we have a deficit of $1 . 136.75. 

Summarizing — the total expense of the three pay exhibitions, 



14 MASSACHUSETTS HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY 

including prizes and medals, was $16,336.05. The total gate 
receipts were $7,573.50, showing a net deficit of $8,762.55. 

All the other exhibitions <of the year were free and we will ask 
your patience to consider a few more figures. At the Exhibition 
of Native Orchids there was an attendance of 22,000. It cost the 
Society $623.00. But it gave more pleasure to more people at a 
less cost per capita to the Society than any other show of the year. 

Next ranks the Dahlia Show when there was an attendance 
(during two afternoons) of 5,300. Then follows the Gladiolus 
Show with 4,959, next the Iris with about 4,000, then Peonies with 
3,889, then Sweet Peas with 3,619, and then Roses with 3,523. 
This matter of attendance, or the response of the public to our 
endeavors on its behalf, is the most extraordinary and inexplicable 
with which we have to deal. Seemingly the largest crowds are 
attracted by novelties, or special and unusual features. If we 
estimate the popularity of everyday flowers to accord with the 
attendance at the exhibitions we obtain the following scale: 1. 
Dahlias, 2. Gladioli, 3. Irises, 4. Peonies, 5. Roses. 

The question of music at our exhibitions has been much discussed, 
and the consensus of opinion, so far as we are able to judge, seems to 
be that it adds enough to the pleasure of the average visitor to 
justify it as an adjunct. In quality it should be appropriate to 
the occasion and therefore should be entrusted to the good graces 
of some person of undoubted taste in such matters. 

Fashion in flowers is as capricious and as unstable as it is in my 
lady's gowns. That which is top-notch today is in the ash heap 
tomorrow. As an example take Chrysanthemums. Ten years ago 
they dominated our autumn exhibition and attracted crowds. Now 
we do not get enough entries to fill the hall and the crowds of 
visitors have disappeared. In a measure this may be attributable 
to the very attractive shows the dealers make in their shops and 
show windows, the psychological fact being that the public will not 
pay to see an exhibition when they can get the same pleasure for 
nothing. 

One more question arises which is a debatable one; a question of 
policy, and is brought up by the rather astounding figures we have 
given you relative to pay and free exhibitions. Our Society being 
primarily an educational one, its effort should be to reach as large 



PLANTS AND FLOWERS, 1921 15 

a number of persons as possible. We stage two exhibitions of 
practically equal merit. One is free and we get an attendance of 
20,000. The other makes a charge of half a dollar and the attend- 
ance drops to less than as many hundreds. The lesson seems 
obvious. 

Our neighbor, The Museum of Fine Arts, also an educational 
institution, remitted the entrance fee a few years ago with the 
result of a largely increased number of visitors. 

The question is, shall we make all of our exhibitions free to the 
public? 

Plants and Flowers. 

T. D. Hatfield, Chairman of the Committee on Plants and 
Flowers, reported in detail the exhibits made at the various exhibi- 
tions of the year 1921. An abstract of his report is given herewith. 

January S. At the Inaugural Meeting held this date, President 
Burrage and J. T. Butterworth showed many rare and beautiful 
orchids; James Wheeler showed a fine vase of the new pink-eolored 
sport of carnation Matchless; William X. Craig, Buddleia asiatica; 
and S. J. Goddard, a vase of Erlangea iomeniosa with violet-colored 
flowers. 

April 0-10. The joint exhibition of the Massachusetts Horti- 
cultural Society and the American Rose Society exceeded the expec- 
tations of the members and others Interested. It was one of the 
best spring shows the Society has held in many years and especially 
noteworthy for the excellence of the material displayed. K< 
and orchids were the principal features. Thomas Roland's i 
garden was artistically arranged and contained abundance of the 

newest and best varieties. 

The Breck, Robinson Co.'s garden was quite different in design. 

If there was any criticism to be made it was lack of color. In other 
words, a monotony of pink prevailed, which might be according to 
the taMes of arti>ticall\ disposed visitors. 

The displays of cut roses were excellent. Hybrid Tea roses were 

the feature. They have quite taken the place of the Tea rosea we 

had years ago. Hardly ever have we seen Mich magnificent bloom-. 

Orchids also were largely represented. 



16 MASSACHUSETTS HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY 

John S. Ames put up a natural arrangement of Kurume azaleas 
with rockwork, water, and a dark green background, affording an 
excellent opportunity to individualize the plants and bring out 
harmonious color effects. 

The Messrs. Farquhar arranged a neat group of Kalmias and 
Polyanthus in the front vestibule. They kept in first-class condi- 
tion throughout the show. Lists of other exhibits may be found in 
the special awards appended to this report. 

On April 23 an exhibition of native New England orchids was 
arranged by President Burrage and scheduled for two days only, but 
so great was the attraction that it was kept open a week longer. 
This was probably the most successful exhibition from the viewpoint 
of attendance the Society has ever held. The paucity of attend- 
ance at some of our later exhibitions, where indoor flowers were the 
feature, may be an indication that the "outdoors'' is becoming 
more and more an attraction and outdoor gardening is to become 
the gardening of the future. It will be no misfortune if it does. 
Native trees and even blueberry bushes and water were skilfully 
used so as to give almost the seclusion of native woods, and the 
plantings were natural. It was a remarkable achievement to 
bring so many species in bloom at one time, as many of them do not 
bloom naturally until late in the season. 

May 28. The May Show was too late for lilacs scheduled for 
this date. A novel feature of the show was the exhibit of miniature 
rock gardens. Three entries were made, each covering a space 
3 x 2 \ feet, filled with wild plants and flowers. 

June 4. At the Rhododendron Show held this date the Arnold 
Arboretum exhibited a new hybrid rhododendron named Anne- 
liesae, a cross between R. arborescens and R. calendulaceum. It was 
fairly intermediate in character but interesting only as showing 
what may be expected from this cross. From the Arnold Arbore- 
tum came Rhododendron holmleaense (R. discolor X R- catawbiense) , 
a very handsome hybrid raised by Charles Sander. T. C. Thur- 
low's Sons, Inc., of West Newbury showed a new rhododendron 
named Wm. P. Rich. It is a very pretty, late, pink-tinted variety, 
evidently closely related to the variety delicatissimum, white. 

There were also interesting collections of herbaceous flowers. 

June 18 was the date assigned for the Peony Show but it was 



PLANTS AND FLOWERS, 1921 17 

too late to be representative. In the vicinity of Boston and south 
of it they were about past. The Thurlow's Sons' of West Newbury 
were about right and their exhibit took in about all the best in 
cultivation. The best blooms in the show came from Ayer's Cliff, 
Province of Quebec, Canada, and were shown by Harry A. Norton. 
Mr. Norton also showed La Lorraine, a yellow blooming tree peony 
of exceptional merit. 

June 25. The Rose and Strawberry Show held this date was 
one of the poorest of the season. The Frick Estate, Manchester, 
made the only display of hybrid roses of any consequence. 

July 9-10. Sweet Pea Show. Sweet peas were in poor condi- 
tion at the time of this show. The weather had been unfavorable 
and the only exhibit of any consequence came from the estate of 
Mrs. Homer Gage, Shrewsbury, Allen J. Jenkins, gardener. 

August 13-14. The Gladiolus Show was held in cooperation 
with the New England Gladiolus Society and was one of the best 
exhibitions of the year; all the halls were filled to overflowing. The 
season was just right and the quality of the flowers was never 
better. The cream of the latest introductions was presented by 
nearly every exhibitor, especially so in the line of the Kunderd and 
Primulinus hybrids. About half the blooms shown were of the 
latter type and were easily noticeable in the yellow, copper, and 
apricot shades, and softened down the brilliant tints of other types. 

September 10. The Dahlia Show. This is always one of our 
most successful shows. ^Ye can always depend on a good display. 
Dahlia enthusiasts insure a good attendance. 

The dahlia has changed wonderfully in the passing years. In 
days gone by we depended to a great extent on importation, but 
classes were restricted for the most part to "Show," "Fancy," and 
"Pompons." Later the Cactus-flowered varieties came in and 
crosses of the various types, already in cultivation, produced new 
forms which are now established and known as "Peony Flowered," 
"Decorative," and "Collarette." Seedlings are easily raised and 
bloom the first year, so that many new varieties are each year 
introduced for public favor, and we have become independent of 
foreign introductions. 

September 22-25. A special exhibit of tropical ferns and orchids 
was held on these dates. Probably never before have so many 



18 MASSACHUSETTS HORTICULTTJKAL SOCIETY 

ferns of all kinds been brought together at one exhibition and never 
before has so much effort on the part of the Society failed to attract 
the public. As a collection of ferns by one exhibitor, that put up 
by W. A. Manda of South Orange, N. J., was probably the largest 
ever seen anywhere. It was as complete as possible. All the 
types, from the stately tree ferns to the most diminutive Selagi- 
nellas were included, down even to the reproduction of ferns by 
spores. Ferns entered everywhere in all the groups and were the 
dominating feature, but scarcely less so were orchids and hardly 
anywhere have we seen so many rare and beautiful kinds. 

November 2-6. The Chrysanthemum Show held on these 
dates was the best we have had for years. True, it lacked speci- 
men plants, once the feature, but this deficiency was made up by 
groups of chrysanthemums arranged with other plants tastefully 
set up by Loren D. Towle of Newton and Mrs. Homer Gage of 
Shrewsbury. So nearly were they of equal decorative value that it 
was difficult for the judges to decide. Hardly secondary to the 
chrysanthemum displays were the groups of new hybrid begonias 
shown by Thomas E. Proctor of Topsfield and Edwin S. Webster 
of Chestnut Hill. 

It is fitting here to mention an old exhibitor of chrysanthemums, 
James Nicol of Quincy, who has been showing cut blooms for more 
than twenty years. He never failed to enter in the class for the 
Henry A. Gane prizes. He grew the variety "Mrs. Jerome Jones " 
exhibited at this exhibition for the last time and has since passed 
awa}'. 

In addition to the money awards as listed in the Schedule the 
following special awards have been made by the committee:

September 22, a Silver Cup was awarded to A. C. Burrage for the most 
artistically arranged group in the exhibition. 



Fruits. 

Fred A. Smith, Chairman of the Committee on Fruits, presented 
his report for the year 1921 as follows: 

The exhibition of fruit has been a feature of six exhibitions held 
by the Society this year. The number of the exhibitors and the 
size of the exhibits have been a disappointment to the committee. 
There have been many circumstances, however, to contribute to 
this state of affairs. First among these was the unfavorable 
climatic conditions which existed at the blossoming periods. Suc- 
cessive and continued frosts and even freezes, extending over a 
long period and these alternating with rainy periods and long con- 
tinued lowery weather gave the very reverse of favorable condi- 
tions for proper pollen ation of fruit. This low fertilization was 
followed by excessive outbreaks of insect and fungous troubles, a 
condition which often follows. 

In spite of the above unusual conditions some of the exhibits of 






VEGETABLES, 1921 25 

fruit were good to excellent, notably the grapes, melons, and 
peaches. The strawberry show was rather disappointing both as 
to variety and quality and also as to the number of exhibitors. 

It would appear that we are now at a turn in the road, or perhaps 
cross-road, in the fruit section of horticulture. Old orchards are 
passing out and disappearing at a rapid rate. Many young 
orchards planted in hope and cherished and cultivated with enthusi- 
asm for a few years are now being badly and sadly neglected. The 
troublesome times of the past five years have negatived much of 
the admirable work of the previous decade. Even nursery pro- 
duction of fruit trees and stock has reached the lowest ebb for 
twenty-five years. The Society through its influence can play 
an important and constructive part in the reestablishment of the 
fruit industry in the state. 

We cannot pass without commenting on the severe loss sustained 
by our orchards during and through the recent ice storm. The 
loss appears to range from slight, in young orchards, to 30% and 
even 35% loss in old orchards. Some old orchards, until recently 
very valuable assets to their farms and owners, are now a question- 
able asset. Decay and further breaking of the trees must soon 
follow with the next crop years. More thought must be given 
to pruning and the shaping of our tree heads. 

Outside the usual money awards as listed in the Schedule of 
Prizes the only special award was that of a Certificate of Honor- 
able Mention to Hillcrest Gardens, Weston, for an exhibit of the 
Senator Dunlap, Premier, and Wilfrid Wheeler strawberries. 

Vegetables. 

William N. Craig, Chairman of the Committee on Vegetables, 
reported that classes were allotted to vegetables at seven of the 
eleven prize exhibitions held id 1921. The displays have been on 
the whole fairly satisfactory. Competition, however, has lacked 
the snap of former years. Several causes have helped to bring 
this about. The past season was a most erratic one. The leading 
exhibitors found difficulty in making displays in the midsummer 
months owing to enforced shortage of labor on their estates, and the 
size of premiums offered was not specially attractive. 



26 



MASSACHUSETTS HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY 



No novelties of particular value were shown the past season and 
the solitary Silver Medal allotted for vegetables was awarded at the 
November exhibition to the Thomas J. Grey Co. for an excellent, 
well-arranged, and varied display. For an exhibit of peanuts 
grown on Cape Cod Howard Marston was awarded a Certificate of 
Honorable Mention. The William B. H. Dowse Trophy was 
awarded to Thomas W. Little of Dedham whose exhibits through 
the year were all of commendable excellence. 

The committee favors the continuance of the summer exhibitions 
and would suggest the desirability of holding a large combined fruit 
and vegetable exhibition in the autumn of 1923, one which would 
attract skilled growers from a distance. The committee would 
suggest also that it would be a good plan to ask the vegetable com- 
mittee to draft a schedule for the year as soon as the number of 
shows and amount of money available for premiums has been 
decided upon. If this plan were adopted some of the vagaries in 
past schedules could be eliminated. A further suggestion and a 
very important one would be that schedules be printed and dis- 
tributed on or about January 1 as was formerly done. The late 
date of issuance of past years has been a handicap to would-be 
exhibitors. 

Children's Gardens. 

The Committee on Children's Gardens, through its Chairman, 
James Wheeler, reported a continued interest in this branch of the' 
Society's activities. Every year the standard of this annual exhi- 
bition is higher in quality and arrangement. It is creating a love 
for horticulture and agriculture, developing better citizens by 
beautifying their homes and towns and teaching them to conserve 
their products through the canning clubs. The appropriation for 
prizes at this exhibition was $307 all of which was awarded to 
children representing 26 towns and districts in eastern Massa- 
chusetts. A list of the entries at the exhibition, held August 27 
and 28, will give some indication of the interest shown. There 
were 97 plates of string beans entered, 63 of tomatoes, 79 of beets, 
51 of carrots, 38 of potatoes, 38 of corn, 85 in the class for any other 
vegetable, and 21 in the class of preserved vegetables. 

Through the interest of several members of the Society the com- 
mittee was enabled to offer a Challenge Cup for the largest and 



ADDITIONAL NOTES, 1921 27 

best collection of vegetables and flowers from a school garden which 
brought out keen competition. It was won this year by the Wil- 
liam McKinley school of Brockton. 

A pleasing addition to the exhibition was an illustrated talk by 
Miss M. R. Case on " A year in New England as seen by a camera, ,, 
which showed the children the beauty of the land in which they are 
living. 

The Library. 

The catalogue of the library of which frequent mention has been 
made in the Librarian's report in recent years has at last been com- 
pleted and published. It is a quarto volume of 587 pages arranged 
in two parts. Part 1 contains an alphabetical list of authors and 
titles occupying 372 double-column pages and Part 2, a classified 
arrangement under subject headings occupying 215 pages. It has 
received highly complimentary notice from horticulturists in both 
Europe and the United States. 

Mr. Warren H. Manning has presented to the library during the 
year an interesting collection of horticultural trade catalogues 
numbering several thousands which has not as yet been wholly 
assorted and added to the already large collection of this material. 
The additions this year of trade catalogues have been 691 making 
the total number to January 1, 1922, 11,624. 

Additional Notes. 

While the details of the various exhibitions of the Society during 
the year 1921 are fully set forth in the reports of the chairmen of 
the several committees the Secretary will add a few observations 
which may be worthy of record. 

The appropriations for prizes and gratuities have been the 
largest for many years. The actual awards made, including med- 
als, have been as follows : 

For plants and flowers, $9,707.02 

For fruits, 1 73.00 

For vegetables, ."> 14.00 

For children's gardens, 307.00 

A total of si 1,031.02 



28 MASSACHUSETTS HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY 

The amount of prizes awarded at the summer shows was com- 
paratively small yet seventy-five per cent of the total attendance 
for the year was represented in these exhibitions. It is through 
these summer shows that the principal horticultural educational 
work of the Society is done. 

These statistics contain suggestions worthy of thoughtful con- 
sideration in making up the annual schedules of prizes and exhibi- 
tions. 

In February and March a course of four lectures was given by 
Professor W. J. V. Osterhout of Harvard University. His subject 
was "The Means of Controlling the Growth and Form of the 
Plant," with especial reference to the effects of food, water, soil 
conditions, poisons, vitamins, and stimulants. The charm of 
Professor Osterhout's manner in addition to the subject treated 
rendered these lectures of more than usual interest. 

It has been often suggested that lectures be given at the regular 
exhibitions of the Society by horticulturists who have had special 
practical experience in the cultivation of the principal flowers 
shown. This suggestion was made effective this year through the 
generous interest of Miss Marian Roby Case who provided the fol- 
lowing named lecturers for the nine summer and autumn exhibitions : 

May 28-29. Kenneth W. Gillett, Southwick, Mass., on the 
cultivation of wild flowers. 

June 4-5. T. D. Hatfield, Wellesley, Mass., on rhododendrons 
and azaleas. 

June 18-19. Bertrand H. Farr, Wyomissing, Pa., on peony cul- 
ture. 

June 25-26. Wilfrid Wheeler, Concord, Mass., on strawberry 
culture. 

July 9-10. Allen J. Jenkins, Shrewsbury, Mass., on sweet pea 
culture. 

August 13-14. H. E. Meader, Dover, N. H., on gladiolus cul- 
ture. 

August 27-28. Miss Marian R. Case, Weston, Mass., an illus- 
trated lecture, a year of New England scenery. 

September 10-11. J. K. Alexander, East Bridgewater, Mass., 
on dahlia growing. 



ADDITIONAL NOTES, 1921 29 

November 2-6. Albert II. Jenks, West Acton, Mass., on orchard 
fruit culture. 

In addition to the above a lecture on tropical ferns was given by 
Ralph C. Benedict, Brooklyn, N. Y., in connection with the Tropi- 
cal Fern Exhibition, September 22-25. These lectures are a 
valuable addition to the educational work of the Society. 

At the Annual Meeting of the Society in November numerous 
amendments to the By-laws, recommended by the Trustees, were 
presented for action by the members, resulting in their adoption by 
more than the two-thirds vote required. 

The publications of the Society during the year and the dates of

Beginning with the year 1920 a change is made in the publica- 
tions of the Society. Since 1874 the "Transactions" have been 
issued in two parts every year, with the exception of the years 1895, 
1896, and 1897, when a third part was added containing a list of 
accessions to the library. Part 1 contained reports of lectures 
delivered before the Society and Part 2, the annual reports of the 
various officers and committees. 

The necessity of a more prompt issue of the horticultural papers 
is recognized and the publication of the "Bulletin" renders it 
unnecessary to continue the former methods. It is now proposed 
to use the "Bulletin" for the horticultural papers and to publish 
an annual report containing the reports of officers and committees.

Inaugural Meeting. 

The Inaugural Meeting of the Massachusetts Horticultural 
Society for the year 1922 was held at Horticultural Hall, Boston, 
on January 19, at three o'clock, with President Burrage in the 
Chair. 

In opening the meeting President Burrage stated that he had 
no formal address to make but called attention to some of the 
principal horticultural events of the past year mentioning particu- 
larly the adoption of the new amendments to the By-laws of the 
Society adopted at the recent Annual Meeting. 

The President then called for the annual reports of the officers 
and chairmen of the various committees which were read, accepted, 
and referred for publication in the Annual Report of the Society. 

The Board of Trustees. 

The Secretary presented a summary of the business transacted 
by the Board of Trustees at the five meetings held during the year 
1922. 

January 21. John S. Ames was appointed Treasurer of the 
Society for the current year and Messrs. Ernest H. Wilson, Arthur 
Lyman, and Mrs. S. V. R. Crosby were elected Trustees to fill 
vacancies existing in the Board. 

The Treasurer reported the expenses of the Society during the 
past year were $39,075.84, leaving a deficit of $8,720.00. 

Standing Committees for the year 1922 were appointed in accord- 
ance with the requirements of the By-laws. 

The President brought up the subject of legislation for the pro- 
tection of wild Mowers, particularly the ma\ flower. Mating that he

had presented a bill to the Legislature forbidding the sale and 
transportation of the flowers. It was voted that the bill as pro- 
posed by the President be approved and that the President and 
Messrs. Sargent, Allen, Saltonstall, and Roland be requested to 
appear in support of the same before the appropriate committee 
of the Legislature; also that a notice be sent to other horticultural 
societies and garden clubs advising them of the proposed bill and 
requesting their support of this legislation. 

The following resolution was adopted: Resolved that the Trus- 
tees of the Massachusetts Horticultural Society favor close cooper- 
ation between that Society and the Garden Clubs of America in 
furtherance of the horticultural interests of this State; and the 
officers of the Society are authorized, under the direction of the 
Executive Committee, to take such action as will be helpful in 
carrying out this resolution. 

On motion of Professor Sargent it was voted to offer the Society's 
Gold Medal to four of the Garden Clubs of this State, namely, the 
Lenox, Richmond, North Shore, and Chestnut Hill Clubs, to be 
awarded by them during the current year. 

An appropriation of $400.00 was voted for the library for the 
current year. 

May 8. Several communications were read expressing enthusi- 
astic appreciation of the Wild Flower and Wild Fern Exhibition 
now being held in the hall. 

The committee on the award of the George Robert White Medal 
of Honor for the current year reported through its chairman, Pro- 
fessor Sargent, the following motion: 

Voted. — That in recognition of his conspicuous service to Horti- 
culture by the establishment in Beverly, Massachusetts, of the 
greatest collection of exotic orchids the New World has yet seen; 
by his skilful and energetic management of the affairs of the 
Society; and by his labors to increase the love, protection and cul- 
tivation of New England wild flowers and ferns through his remark- 
able exhibition in Boston of these plants in the spring of 1921 and 
1922, the George Robert White Medal, given only to those men or 
women who in recent years have done the most for Horticulture, be 
awarded by the Trustees of the Massachusetts Horticultural 
Society to their President, Albert C. Burrage. The motion of Pro- 



THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES, 1922 9 

fessor Sargent was seconded by Mr. Endicott and unanimously 
voted and adopted. 

It was voted to appoint William C. Endicott as a member of the 
Executive Committee and also of the Finance Committee to fill 
vacancies existing in those committees on account of the death of 
Mr. Sal tons tall. 

June 1. A communication from Mrs. Louisa Yeomans King was 
read acknowledging the receipt of the George Robert White Medal 
of Honor awarded her for eminent service in horticulture. 

The President spoke of the need of increasing the membership of 
the Society and asked for suggestions as to the best methods of 
accomplishing it. He said that from the widespread interest mani- 
fested in the recent Wild Flower Exhibition this would seem to be a 
good time for extending the list of members. After some discus- 
sion of the matter it was voted, on motion of Professor Sargent, 
that a committee of three be appointed, of which the President 
should be a member, to plan for such addition to the membership 
of the Society. The President appointed as the other two members 
of this committee Messrs. Endicott and Sargent. 

October 16. A communication from Mr. J. F. Bailey, Director 
of the Botanic Gardens of Adelaide, South Australia, was read 
expressing his keen appreciation of the honor of election to Corre- 
sponding Membership in the Society. Also one from Mrs. Banyer 
Clarkson of Tyringham, Massachusetts, conveying to the Society 
her sincere thanks for the Gold Medal awarded her through the 
Lenox Horticultural Society. 

The Treasurer, Mr. Ames, presented a report on the financial 
condition of the Society showing a considerable deficit for the year, 
mostly on account of the extensive repairs made on the building. 
The subject of appropriations tor the exhibitions of the ensuing 
year was referred with full power to the Executive Committee. 

December 10. A communication was presented from John C. 
Wister of Philadelphia recommending that sonic action be taken 
by the Society to discourage the practice of naming seedlings of 
some 1 of our popular flowers, many of which show little or no im- 
provement in varieties already existing. It was voted that a 
committee of three be appointed by the (hair to consider the 
matter and report to the Trustees, and so far a- possible cooperate 



10 MASSACHUSETTS HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY 

with the New York and Pennsylvania societies. The President 
appointed as this committee Messrs. Roland, Thurlow, and 
Cameron. 

The offer of the Wm. B. H. Dowse Trophy for another year to be 
awarded for exhibits of vegetables was accepted with thanks. It 
was voted to invite the New England Gladiolus Society to hold its 
annual exhibition for the ensuing year in conjunction with the 
Gladiolus Exhibition of the Massachusetts Horticultural Society. 
The Standing Committees of the Society for the year 1923 were 
appointed. 

In compliance with the By-laws of the Society it was voted that 
the following named annual members be transferred to the list of 
life members, having paid all dues for twenty-five years: 

John Barr, South Natick, Mass. 

Thomas J. Grey, Chelsea, " 

Harlan P. Kelsey, Salem, " 

Frederic H. Kennard, Newton, " 

Mrs. F. A. Pierce, Brookline, " 

Frederic J. Rea, Norwood, " 

Charles J. Sander, Brookline, " 

Mr. Allen, Chairman of the Committee on Exhibitions, reported 
the completion of the Schedule of Prizes for 1923 showing an over- 
run of about $1,000.00 of the appropriation voted by the Trustees. 
It was voted to accept and approve the report of Mr. Allen, and 
Miss Case offered to be responsible for any deficit that may result 
on account of the excess. 

On motion of Professor Sargent it was voted to offer the Society's 
Gold Medals to be awarded through the Chestnut Hill Garden 
Society and the Lenox Garden Club and also to suggest to the 
President of the Garden Club of America the award of its medal 
at one of the exhibitions of the Massachusetts Horticultural 
Society. 

An appropriation of $420 was voted for the library for the year 
1923.

Exhibitions. 

Thomas Allen, Chairman of the Committee on Exhibitions, 
presented the following report: 

In accordance with the terms of the new By-laws of the Society 
a divorce has taken place; the former Committee on Prizes and 
Exhibitions has been separated and there are now two committees 
in place of one, one on Prizes and the other on Exhibitions. 

Acting on the suggestion of the Chairman of this committee 
made last year that needless repetitions in the reports of the various 
committees be avoided the following report attempts no digressions. 

The principal duties of the Committee on Exhibitions are, first, 
to formulate and publish a schedule of exhibitions for the year, and, 
second, to supervise, in a general way, the installation of the 
exhibitions. In the preparation of the schedules it is necessary for 
the Exhibition Committee to act in conjunction with the Committee 
on Prizes, and it is also found helpful to have the Chairmen of the 
Committees on Fruits and Vegetables attend the meetings when 
the schedules are being prepared. 

As the first exhibition planned for 1922 was a Grand Exhibition 
of Spring Flowering Bulbs, it was necessary to issue a preliminary 
schedule as early as June, 1921, in order that the growers and ex- 
hibitors should have ample time to prepare. The regular schedule, 
a pamphlet covering 42 pages, was issued in March, 1922. This 
schedule covers the nine exhibitions authorized by the Trustees. 

The first exhibition was of spring-flowering bulbs, from March 
23 to 26, inclusive. Eighty-three classes were scheduled and fifty 
awards were made. No account of the attendance was kept. 
The price of admission was placed at 25 cents. The receipts were 
$431.50 and the expense, aside from the prizes, was $192.50. 

The next regular exhibition was on June 3 and 4, including 
rhododendrons, azaleas, and irises. No charge for admission was 
made. The number of classes scheduled was 2S, the Dumber of 
awards was 22, the attendance, 3,243. 

On June 17 came the peonies, a free exhibition. The Dumber of 
classes scheduled was 13, the number of awards made, 12. The 
attendance was 4,015. 

On June 24 and 25 was held the Rose, Strawberry, and S 



12 MASSACHUSETTS HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY 

Pea Exhibition, in conjunction with the annual exhibition of the 
American Sweet Pea Society. The number of classes scheduled 
was 56, the number of awards made, 22. The attendance was 3,819. 
No charge was made for admission. 

The Gladiolus Exhibition was held August 12 and 13 with the 
cooperation of the New England Gladiolus Society. The number 
of classes scheduled was 40, number of awards made, 36. The 
attendance was 5,966, with no charge for admission. 

On August 26 and 27 came the Exhibition of the Products of 
Children's Gardens; 28 classes were scheduled and awards were 
made in all classes. No record of attendance was kept. 

On September 9 and 10 was held the Dahlia and Fruit Exhibition 
in conjunction with the New England Dahlia Society. The num- 
ber of classes scheduled was 68 ; number of awards made, 46. The 
exhibition was free and the attendance was 6,162. 

The last exhibition of the year was the Autumn Exhibition of 
Plants, Flowers, Fruits, and Vegetables held November 4 and 5. 
The number of classes scheduled was 108. The number of awards 
made was 81. The admission fee was fifty cents and the attend- 
ance was 1,529. 

I took occasion last year to call attention to the relative popu- 
larity of different cultivated flowers as manifested by the attend- 
ance of visitors to our exhibitions. The result this year is the same 
as it was last year. Dahlias head the list with an attendance of 
6,162; gladioli come next, the number of visitors being 5,966; 
rhododendrons and irises follow with 4,015; then roses, which this 
year were coupled with sweet peas, brought an attendance of 3,819. 
These were all free exhibitions. When an admission fee was 
charged the attendance diminished in a most astonishing degree. 
The attendance at the Chrysanthemum Show, when fifty cents 
was charged for admittance, being but 1,529. 

In view of this fact, and that this Society is primarily an educa- 
tional society, and should therefore reach, in its endeavors, the 
largest possible number of persons, it seemed advisable that, for 
the present at least, all exhibitions of the Society should be open 
free to the public, and it was so voted by your Board of Trustees 
at their last meeting, held in December, 1922. 

Your Committee on Exhibitions has already prepared the 



EXHIBITIONS, 1922 13 

schedule for 1923 and it is now in the hands of the printer. In the 
preparation of this schedule your Committee on Exhibitions wishes 
to acknowledge the material assistance rendered by the Chairman 
of the Committee on Plants and Flowers, the Chairman of the 
Committee on Fruits, and the Chairman of the Committee on 
Vegetables. 

At the suggestion of your President, Mr. Burrage, a special 
exhibition of wild flowers and wild ferns, native to New England, 
was announced for May 3-11, the object being to familiarize the 
people with our native flowers and plants, and to stimulate the 
desire for their protection and preservation. 

Practically speaking, in the common parlance of the day, it was a 
one man show. Preparations were begun more than a year in 
advance and collections were made from all quarters of New Eng- 
land, from the Cape to the mountains. Our enterprising President, 
Mr. Burrage, with his active and competent corps of assistants, 
really performed a miracle. By forcing some plants and retarding 
others, over a long period of time, asters and cardinal flowers were 
made to bloom with may flowers and hepaticas. 

The installation of this exhibition was a masterpiece. It was so 
well done that visitors were impressed with a consciousness of being 
"back to nature." The main hall was transformed into a moun- 
tain gorge. At the further end an eighteen foot high waterfall 
came tumbling over a rocky bed into a large and shadowy pool. 
It was backed and nearly surrounded by a most natural looking 
forest of conifers, and great masses of ferns. From the pool a 
brook flowed under a rustic bridge and on through the ((Mitral 
glade. Pine needle covered-paths led from one fascinating point 
to another. All the ferns, native to New England, were growing 
there in natural surroundings and made one of the most attractive 
and instructive features. Then there were dogwoods, high and 
low bush blueberries, marsh marigolds and bayberries, all in full 
flower and all smiling and happy with their unusual neighbors, an 
assemblage such as, in all probability, will never come together 
again. It was a most beautiful and fascinating place, and aroused 
a most unwonted enthusiasm with the public which was manifested 
by the extraordinary and unparalleled attendance. Such was its 
popularity the exhibition was kept open until May 14. The turn- 



14 MASSACHUSETTS HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY 

stiles registered an attendance of nearly 83,000 persons, a figure 
never before even approached by any exhibition ever held in these 
halls, and there have been manv of most extraordinarv merit and 
interest. I have called it a masterpiece of installation and no 
other word seems adequate. 

This community is under a deep obligation to Mr. Bur-rage for 
his altruistic activities on its behalf in promoting the interests 
which underlie the foimdation of this Society. 

Plants and Flowers. 

Theophilus D. Hatfield, Chairman of the Committee on Plants 
and Flowers, reported in detail the exhibits made at the exhibitions 
of the year 1922. 

March 23-26. Spring Exhibition. This was only a fair show. 
The Schedule called for a liberal supply of bulbous plants, but was 
poorly filled. Various exhibits of decorative material not called 
for in the Schedule saved the show from being a failure. 

Edwin S. Webster's display of French hydrangeas was well done. 
His group of decorative plants was well designed and tastefully 
arranged. It included acacias, heaths, Cytisus, Narcissus, Primu- 
las, and Hyacinths as prominent features. He also had a display 
of well-grown Cyclamen. 

Frederick E. Palmer, the Brookline florist, had a neat display of 
commercial plants, including palms, ferns, marguerites, hydrangeas, 
Schizanthus. and Baby-Rambler roses. The Iristhorpe Spring 
Bulb Garden was well-conceived and laid out with characteristically 
spring blooming plants, such as bulbs, primroses, irises, azaleas, 
forsythias, and dwarf evergreens. 

Mrs. C. G. Weld set up an imposing group with Schizanthus, 
Amaryllis, Freesia, Cyclamen, Primulas, tulips, narcissi, ferns, 
palms, and hydrangeas. The wealth of material used could have 
occupied more space with equally good effect. 

Loren D. Towle had a good group of well-grown Pink Pearl 
rhododendron, acacias, azaleas, and ferns, with decorative material 
in an effective grouping. W. W. Edgar Co. put up a lot of finely 
grown commercial plants with acacias, Baby Rambler and other 
roses, and hydrangeas as the principal features. Mrs. R. M. 



PLANTS AND FLOWERS, 1022 15 

Saltonstall showed a well-finished lot of Schizanthus, Cinerarias, 
and the old-fashioned Laehenalias. Walter Hunnewell Estate 
exhibited azalea Louisa Hunnewell, Azalea Kaempferi, and Azalea 
speciosa, the last recently discovered in the Southern States. 

E. B. Dane made a display of heaths and cut orchids. E. S. 
Webster also had a fine display of orchids. The Harvard Botanic 
Garden showed an uncommon plant, the Isoloma hirsutum, an ally 
of the Gesnerias. Edward Rose of Somerville made an educational 
display of bulbous plants, all being distinctly labeled. 

William Walke of Salem staged a select group of Amaryllis with 
decorative material. L. D. Towle, George P. Gardner, Jr., A. W. 
Preston, Mrs. J. L. Gardner, E. S. Webster, and Miss Margaret A. 
Rand were the principal exhibitors of bulbous plants. 

May 3-14. Wild Flower Show. The success of the native 
orchid show in 1921 no doubt prompted Mr. Burrage, our enterpris- 
ing president, to have one of wild flowers this year. It was a large 
undertaking and was carried out with great skill. It was a wonder- 
ful achievement to have so many genera and species represented, 
blooming as they do naturally at various seasons of the year, in 
bloom at one time. Great credit is due to Mr. Burrage and his 
able assistants, Douglas Eccleston and Frederick Pocock, for carry- 
ing out the plan, even to the minutest detail. 

June 3 and 4. Rhododendron, Azalea, and Iris Exhibition. 
Irises were shown in quantity and extra fine quality by Miss Grace 
Sturtevant of W'ellesley Farms, Mrs. Homer Gage of Shrewsbury, 
and Mrs. C. W. Willis of Bedford. Miss Sturtevant's collection 
was notable for the large number of Iris pallida dalmatica hybrids, 
many of which she has raised. Among them were Shekinah, yel- 
low; Caterina, yellow and chocolate tinted; Myth, solid blue 
Balboa, solid lavender; Pandora, lavender; Trojana, deep blue 
and Ossian, yellow. Iristhorpe gardens had Jacqueminot, maroon 
Bernice, Kharput, Princess Victoria, and Iris flaoescens. 

Henry Stewart of Waltham showed a very good plant of the 

bottle-brush, M etmsidrrns floribunda, and a specimen plant of 
Dendrobittm tkyrsjflorum. 

T. C. Thurlow's Sons made an attractive grouping of rhododen- 
drons including plants as well as cut blooms. They also showed 

Ghent and Mollis azaleas, and the new rhododendron which they 



16 MASSACHUSETTS HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY 

have named for W. P. Rich, the Secretary of the Society. It has a 
pretty pink bloom very much after delicatissimum in form. 

June 17 and 18. The Peony Show. T. C. Thurlow's Sons of 
West Newbury were the principal exhibitors of peonies which were 
past hereabouts. The flowers were not up to form as they had been 
kept in storage. The display was set up attractively with a flower 
garden effect by James Wheeler of Natick and it did him great 
credit. 

June 24-25. The Rose, Strawberry, and Sweet Pea Exhibition. 
A very good display of Rambler and bush roses was made by A. J. 
Fish of New Bedford. Amongst them were Silver Moon, and Dr. 
Van Fleet; Aunt Harriet, crimson; Gruss an Freundorf, maroon; 
Sander's, white; Oriole, yellow; Philadelphia Rambler, scarlet; 
Christine Miller, Petite Jean, and Edwin Lonsdale. Hillcrest 
Gardens showed fine larkspurs ; Walter Hunnewell Estate, Clematis 
recta, var. mandshurica and Astilbe koreana. Mrs. Lester Leland, 
Eric H. Wetterlow, gardener, set up a very fine group of seedling 
tuberous begonias. They are evidently well adapted for bedding 
purposes. 

The Sweet Pea Show as such came near being a failure on account 
of weather conditions. There were few exhibitors and only a lim- 
ited amount of stock was staged. Edwin Jenkins of Lenox mus- 
tered enough to compete for the Hutchins Memorial Prize. In this 
exhibit were Daisy K. Elliott, pink; Ravensburg, bronze purple; 
Cecily, cream pink; Floradale Purple; Hebe, pink; R. F. Felton, 
lavender; Fel ton's Cream and Rose Elliott, magenta; Constance 
Hinton, white; and Mrs. Tom Jones, blue. 

August 12-13. The Gladiolus Show. This was one of the best 
of the year in every way. Gladiolus enthusiasts attended in large 
numbers. For the time being the Primulinus hybrids hold first 
place, their gracefully arching spikes and lovely color tones appeal 
to all. Besides they are more easily adaptable for various kinds of 
decorations and very fine effects can be made when used with 
almost any kind of greenery. 

For bolder effects and especially where brilliant coloring effects 
are desired the Gandavensis, Lemoinei, and Childsii hybrids will 
continue to find a place. Some of the best of the Primulinus 
hybrids are Salmon Beauty, Alma Gluck, Butterfly, Simplicity, 



PLANTS AND FLOWERS, 1922 17 

Dawson, and Naomi. A fine vase of Mrs. Frank Pendleton was 
shown by Charles Beasley of Milton. Of the other types some of 
the outstanding varieties were Schwaben, yellow; Panama, sulphur 
tinted pink; Dr. Norton; Red Emperor; Pink Perfection ; Europa, 
white; Persian, maroon; Niagara, yellow; H. C. Goehl, Lemoinei 
hybrid, white, dark blotch; Diana, red; Crimson Glow; America, 
lavender pink. 

A. L. Stephen won the prize for a display of fifty or more varieties 
with one hundred; B. & A. Norley of Roslindale and C. W. Brown 
of Ashland made fine displays of seedlings. The principal exhibi- 
tors were A. L. Stephen, S. E. Spencer, Charles Beasley, James 
Wheeler, Eugene Fischer, C. F. Fairbanks, L. D. Towle, and A. L. 
McLean. 

The Bay State Nurseries made an extensive display of herbaceous 
flowers, Miss Marian Roby Case showed a tasteful basket of lace 
flowers and poppies, Thomas H. Hughes, decorative dahlias, and 
T. C. Thurlow's Sons, phloxes. 

September 9-10. The Dahlia Show. Apparently the dahlia 
remains the most popular flower with the mass of garden lovers. 
This was one of the best shows of the season. One commercial 
firm made an attractive display arranged in baskets with foliage. 
This was a welcome change from the monotony of row on row of 
bottles. The majority of the flowers staged were of the 1 >ecoratdve 
and otherwise ragged types, noted for their large size and often 
coarseness. Very few of the neater, old-time Show and Fancy were 
to be seen. There were many aliases. Something ought to be 
done by the Dahlia Society to classify and weed out synonyms. 

November 4-5. The Autumn Exhibition. The Chrysanthe- 
mum Show has lost its name. What a change I Loren D. Towle's 
display of chrysanthemums with other decorative materia] in 
design and arrangement was the most effective grouping seen here 
for a long time. There were no specimen plants. Mr. Towle's 
big blooms were quite up to the standard for size but there were no 
Dew varieties. 

Edwin S. \\ ebster's decorative display had some very good hybrid 
begonias as a feature. It was well designed and tastefully arranged. 
Mr. Towle's decorative display Included some very good orchids. 
Single chrysanthemums came from Arthur Lyman. Mrs. Homer 



18 MASSACHUSETTS HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY 

Gage, and Cromwell Gardens, Connecticut. They attracted much 
attention. 

A. E. T. Rogers of Prides Crossing exhibited a table of seedling 
chrysanthemums raised by him from Mrs. Filkins, an old fringed 
variety of the Anemone-flowered type. While retaining more or 
less the fringed character of the parents they showed considerable 
diversity of form and may become valuable for decorative purposes. 

In addition to the money awards as listed in the Schedule the 
following special awards have been made by the committee :

Other Awards. 

June 4. the Hillcrest Gardens Silver Cup was awarded to Iristhorpe for 
the best display of irises arranged for effect by an amateur, to be 
awarded to the exhibitor winning it three times. 

June 24. the Chestnut Hill Garden Society Silver Trophy was awarded to 
Iristhorpe for the most artistic exhibit of sweet peas. 

Fruits. 

Edward B. Wilder, Chairman of the Committee on Fruits, 
presented his report for the year 1922, as follows: 

The display of fruit for the year has been limited to four exhibi- 
tions, the Schedule making no provision for the usual show of 
currants, raspberries, and other small fruits in July. 

The Strawberry Exhibition was a failure, there being only one 
plate of strawberries and two plates of cherries on the table June 
24-25. This was due to the early season, the crop having passed 
before the date set for the exhibition. 

It seems increasingly difficult in our uncertain New England 
climate to make up a Schedule for small fruits six months in ad- 
vance and set a date for their exhibition with anv certaintv of 
having the date of the exhibition come at the height of the crop. 
We are very glad to state that the Schedule for 1923 has left the 
dates for the June exhibitions to be fixed later, as the season de- 
velops. It is interesting to note that at the Exhibition of Summer 
Fruits, August 12-13, prizes were awarded for every class in apples 
and pears; peaches and plums, however, being scarce. 

Mrs. C. E. Cotting of Manchester, Mass., J. F. Madden, gardener, 
received a Certificate of Merit for a seedling melon grown under 
glass. This melon is a cross between Honey Dew and Sutton's 
Superlative, some specimens having a very thick orange flesh of 
most excellent flavor, other specimens having green flesh but also 
of good flavor. The Committee is of the opinion that this seedling 



VEGETABLES, 1922 21 

melon is of great promise; and it is hoped that it will be perfected 
by its originator. 

There was a good display of fruit at the Dahlia and Fruit Exhibi- 
tion, September 9-10, although the date was a little early for 
autumn fruits. The apples were excellent and the native grapes 
very attractive, with some peaches, plums, and foreign grapes. 
This was by far the best show of the season up to that time. We 
think, however, that the fruits at the November Exhibition, 
November 4-5, outclassed anything during the year. The Lecture 
Hall contained a fine display of apples, one long table being en- 
tirely devoted to any variety of apple other than those classed in 
the Schedule. 

Special mention should be made of the class for fifty specimens 
of apples, in which there were eleven entries. Much interest in 
this class was shown. There was also an excellent display of pears 
and native grapes which warrants special mention because of the 
lateness in the year for such fruit. 

The Special Prize offered by the President of the Society of a 
$50.00 Silver Cup for the most effective, comprehensive exhibit of 
fruit grown by the exhibitor and covering a space of 50 square feet 
was awarded the Hillcrest Gardens of ^Yeston, Mass., which had a 
very attractive exhibit of fruit beautifully arranged with oak 
leaves in their gorgeous autumn coloring against the wall of the 
Lecture Hall. 

These autumn exhibitions have greatly encouraged your com- 
mittee, who ask your hearty cooperation that the great Fruit and 
Vegetable Exhibition to be held September 28-30, 1923, may be the 
best ever held in these halls. 

Vegetables. 

William X. Craig, Chairman of the Committee on Vegetables, 
reported that the exhibits of vegetables made during 1922 were 
fewer in number than for some years but the quality was uni- 
formly good. The season was on the whole a good one for vege- 
table growing and crops averaged a little better than usual; ex- 
ceptions were celery which was much attacked by blight and in 
many fields and gardens seriously damaged by the European corn

borer; also sweet corn the culture of which has been given up 
completely in some sections owing to the last named pest. As the 
corn borer attacks other vegetables than celery and corn and is 
steadily spreading it has become a most serious menace to vegetable 
growers. 

The summer was an extremely wet one and both potatoes and 
tomatoes suffered from the excess of moisture but we never had 
cleaner and better grown specimens of each at our exhibitions. 

Vegetable collections have been good but in some cases more 
artistic arrangement might have been made with very little effort. 
Splendidly grown vegetables properly displayed are equally as 
attractive as fruits or flowers and exhibitors should see to it that 
each specimen is staged so as to show its individuality. We are 
still much behind the European shows when it comes to artistic 
groupings. We can grow good specimens, why not take time to 
properly display them? There is also great need for improvement 
in nomenclature. The rules of the Society are not obeyed at all in 
many cases and exhibitors must be taught the absolute necessity 
of labeling all exhibits plainly, not with small wooden labels, tags, 
or strips of paper of variable size, but with plain cards of a uniform 
size either printed, typed, or written in ink. There is a crying need 
of better labeling of not only vegetables but of flowers and fruits 
and this was especially true at our August and September shows. 

Appropriations for vegetables were small in 1922 and for several 
preceding years. They are much more liberal for the coming year 
and we look to see more extensive and better grown displays of 
vegetables at the shows in 1923 than for many years. A combined 
vegetable and fruit exhibition is scheduled for September 28-30, 
1923, and we would earnestly urge the support of commercial 
growers, who have been all too few of late, private gardeners, and 
amateur cultivators, so that we may have displays at this and 
other exhibitions which will reflect credit to the Society. It will be 
particularly pleasing to have specimens shown of new and unusual 
vegetables such as Miss Case of Hillcrest Gardens has done so 
much to popularize. 

The William B. H. Dowse Trophy offered to the exhibitor mak- 
ing the best showing of vegetables during the year was awarded to 
Oliver Ames of North Easton (Edward Parker, gardener). The

Silver Cup offered by the President of the Society for the most 
effective comprehensive exhibit of vegetables covering a space of 
fifty sq. ft. was awarded at the Autumn Exhibition to Hillcrest 
Gardens, Weston. 

Children's Gardens. 

The Committee on Children's Gardens, through its Chairman, 
James Methven, presented the following report: 

The Annual Exhibition of the Products of Children's Gardens 
was held at Horticultural Hall on Saturday and Sunday, August 
26 and 27, 1922. With five exceptions all the prizes offered by the 
Society were awarded and competition in some of the classes was 
remarkable. In the class for six specimens of tomatoes there were 
92 entries, and in eleven classes for single plates or specimens of 
vegetables there were 473 entries. In the class for the best col- 
lection of four varieties of vegetables there were 42 entries. 

In the classes for flowers the competition was also keen. There 
were 50 entries for the five prizes offered for a vase of dahlias. 
The quality of the products exhibited showed a wonderful improve- 
ment over previous years. During the show several of the judges 
gave advice to the children in selecting and arranging their exhibits, 
a work which could be continued with good results. 

Additional Notes.
